Streampix Weekend Watch: The Most Frightening Movie Quotes Ever!

"Child's Play 2." (Universal Pictures)

In most horror films, the frights come before the screenplay, but there’s nothing scarier than the lines uttered by the characters in the “Child’s Play” and “A Nightmare on Elm Street.” Streampix is celebrating Halloween with screenings of four in each of these momentous franchises, and to enhance your enjoyment offers the ultimate Trick or Treat prize—the most memorable quotes in each. So, be afraid, be very afraid…

Child’s Play 2”:  This 1990 sequel takes place two years after the event of the first film, with Alex Vincent’s Andy placed in foster care, while his mom is committed to a mental hospital. Play Pals, the company behind the “Good Guy” Chucky doll (voiced by Brad Dourif), is still trying to overcome the bad publicity caused by the events of the first movie, melting down the parts into a rebuilt doll which is ready to cause more havoc when it visits Andy in his new home. Christine Elise’s Kyle, the other foster child taken in by Andy’s new family, tells a cop who stops them and sees Chucky in the back seat of the car: “You’ve seen dolls that pee? This one bleeds.” [Watch here]

Child’s Play 3”: Justin Whalen takes over the role of the beleaguered victim Andy for the third installment of this classic horror series in 1991, as Chucky is once more resurrected and chasing after his prey, now a troubled teenage cadet attending military school. The movie gained a measure of notoriety in the U.K. when it was suggested it inspired the notorious real-life murder of James Bulger by a pair of 10-year-olds supposedly imitating a scene in which one of Chucky’s victims is splashed with blue paint, though it was later disproved by investigators. The bad critical and public reaction to the film led creator Don Mancini to wait seven years to do another. Says Chucky after one particularly gruesome killing: “Nothin’ like a good strangulation to get the circulation goin’.” [Watch here]

Bride of Chucky”:  In the fourth iteration of the murderous doll, which came out in 1998, Jennifer Tilly’s Tiffany gets more than she bargained for when she brings back her boyfriend’s spirit in a doll. This was the first of the series to actually take a comedic bent, turning into full-on self-referential parody when Tilly turns into a doll herself. The movie also marks Chucky’s newly enhanced, post-surgical, stitched-up look, with the stapes and scars following his demise in “Child’s Play 3,” with a blink-and-you-miss-it appearances by Katherine Heigl and Kathy Najimi. Says Tiffany to Chucky, who was nominated for an MTV Movie Award for Best Villain for his role: “You know me. I’ll kill anybody, but I’ll only sleep with someone I love.” [Watch here]

Seed of Chucky”: This 2004 version, the first one directed by creator Don Mancini follows Chucky and his bride Tiffany on a Hollywood killing spree. Jennifer Tilly plays herself, while cult film director John Waters has a cameo as a paparazzo in the fifth installment of the series, the last until this year’s “Curse of Chucky.”  The movie also features victims in rapper Redman and someone playing Britney Spears, who both meet grisly demises. Says Tilly in a classic moment: “I’m an Oscar nominee for god’s sake. Now look at me; I’m f***ing a puppet.” [Watch here]

A Nightmare on Elm Street”:  Wes Craven’s 1984 original remains a classic, the story of teens in a small town driven to suicide by the appearance of Robert Englund’s Freddy Krueger—a former suspected child molester burned by angry parents years before—in their dreams.  In one of the movie’s most chilling moments, Freddy says: “I’m your boyfriend now, Nancy.” [Watch here]

A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge”: In this 1985 sequel, a new family moves into the house in Elm Street, as Freddy returns to wreak some more havoc. Freddy digs into his victim’s skull and scoops out some gray matter: “You’ve got the body… I’ve got the brain.” [Watch here]

A Nightmare on Elm Street 5: The Dream Child”: For the series’ fifth iteration in 1989, Freddy possesses a teen’s unborn baby.  Stephen Hopkins, who went on to direct episodes of Showtime’s “Californication” and “Shameless,” does the honors. Says the newly retooled Krueger: “Faster than a bastard maniac! More powerful than a loco madman. It’s… Super Freddy!” [Watch here]

Freddy’s Dead: The Final Nighmare”: This sixth and final installment of the series in 1991, which preceded the 1994 “Wes Craven’s New Nightmare,” Ronnie Yu’s 2003 “Freddy vs. Jason” and Samuel Bayer’s 2010 reboot, was New Line’s first 3D release, and features Freddy going after the last child left alive in Springwood. Johnny Depp, whose screen debut was in the very first movie in the franchise, makes a cameo appearance, as does Roseanne Barr, Tom Arnold and Alice Cooper, while Iggy Pop sings the title track over a montage of previous highlights in the series. Lisa Zane as Freddy’s alleged child, gets the best line after lighting a stick of dynamite and placing it in her dad’s chest. “Happy Father’s Day,” she says before giving him one last kiss, while old Razorblade Hands mutters to himself, “Kids.” His daughter has the last words, uttering the denouement, “Freddy’s dead.” [Watch here]
